Yes!,Finally.. I crossed the 700 mark, I feel like a million bucks, and I'm all set to work on my 5-6 applications.
My trajectory: 570 > 650 > 710 (V 39 ; Q48)
My 1st attempt was after self study, using a buch of hand me down books, I was scoring ~ 700 on my practice tests, but I don’t know what went wrong, I got a 570.!
2nd attempt: I took the a GMAT prep class, found it somewhat useful, got a 670. Was even more frustreated than the 1st time.
3rd attempt: I took 2 months to study, and hired an ace online tutor.. this is what took me over the top.. my tutor was able to pin point my weaknesses and helped me cross my threshold and get into the promised land.. I got a 710!! For those people who need a push to cross the 700 mark, this is what helps the best I think.

I also want to highlight the importance of this. You were willing to find adjust and try something different. A number of test takers sometimes become passive and do the same thing for their retake. Another important issue was that you focused on your weaknesses.
By the way, was your second test score a 650 or 670? _________________
Just 1 more comment for those trying to cross a 700.. don't aim for a 700 and expect to get it. Aim for a 730-740 and maybe you'll land a 700.
In other words, you should be scoring a 720+ in your final few tests to expect to get a 700 in the real test... If you are scoring under 700 in your tests, and if time permits, better work on your weaknesses and postpone your test… that’s what I did.. and it worked!
